The last time Cathy Konciak saw her husband, Edward, was March 12 at his room at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood. Later that day, he was moved to the Family of Caring at Montclairnursing home to continue his recovery from a sports-related brain injury, but without family by his side.“The day after he arrived there, I brought a bag with more clothing for him and an iPad.

On the same day as the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, staff at Kemble Elementary School in Sacramento, California discovered a handgun with a loaded magazine inside a second-grade student's desk.
Other students reportedly notified staff about the weapon.
Fox 40 in Sacramento interviewed Javier Delvalle, the father of a kindergarten student.
“Makes me not want to bring my daughter to school anymore,” he said.
“I’m just scared for them, you know? I mean, I heard about what happened yesterday in Texas on the news, but now, here at the school my daughter goes to? I don’t even want to bring my kids to school here anymore,” Delvalle said.
Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg understood Delvalle's apprehension.
“The fact that any gun with ammunition would be brought to any school is rightfully scary,” Steinberg said. “There are many questions. Where did the child get the gun? Where was the adult responsible? Why did the adult have that gun."

On Wednesday, The Guardian reported that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is demanding that the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol turn over the material that put him under scrutiny before he complies with the subpoena issued to him.
"The response by Jordan — the top Republican on the House judiciary committee who spoke to Donald Trump on January 6 — stopped short of a refusal to comply with his subpoena, though it was not clear how he would proceed if the panel refused his request," reported Hugo Lowell. "In the six-page letter sent to the select committee and obtained by the Guardian, Jordan demanded House investigators share with him all materials they intended to rely upon in questioning, materials in which he is referenced, and legal analyses about subpoenaing members of Congress."
“Because your subpoena is an unprecedented use of a committee’s compulsory authority against another member, I respectfully ask for the following material so that I may adequately further respond to your subpoena,” wrote Jordan.
Jordan has offered inconsistent details on his conversation with Trump on the day of the insurrection, not even being able to keep straight when the calls happened.
Originally, Jordan was put forward by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as a proposed member of the committee itself. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) rejected his appointment, citing his comments critical of the committee's existence and his ties to people under investigation in the attack, after which McCarthy withdrew all his nominations and boycotted the committee.
Jordan is one of several House Republicans facing a subpoena from the committee. Others include Reps. Mo Brooks (R-AL), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Scott Perry (R-PA).
Amy Duggar King offered her thoughts after her cousin Josh Duggar was sentenced to 151 months in federal prison for child pornography.
"Twelve and a half years isn't enough, but I hope that every single second he's there feels like an eternity," King told Celebuzz!
Prior to sentencing, sentencing, King shared with The Sun the letter she wanted to send to U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks.
“There is a Bible verse, Luke 17:2. 'It’s better to hang a millstone over your head and jump into the ocean if you’re going to hurt one of my little ones.' I’m sure he’s watched several children get hurt," she said. "If the Bible says jump in the ocean and drown, how long would that equal in prison?”
King often made appearances on the TV show "19 Kids and Counting."
"I knew he had a pornography problem, but I had no idea it went to the lowest of the low. Very demonic. Extremely demonic to enjoy that," she said.
